Figures updated (in first post). A couple of crazy sales in the last couple of weeks, including an unjacketed 1946 Hobbit which sold twice (the first time for 550 pounds, and the second time for just over a thousand pounds!). The seller told me that the first buyer couldn't complete the sale, so it was re-listed. The first price was a bit high, the second price for it was nuts, especially as one every bit as good sold a few weeks earlier for sub-500. Very odd.

A couple of surprisingly expensive jacket-less 1966s last week, also. One at 29 pounds, which was crap, and a decent copy at 39 pounds. Silly price for a not-very-rare book with no jacket, though.

Maybe it is because Christmas is on the way, so people are throwing their money away on gifts and The Hobbit is topical due to the movie.

Has anyone noticed (recently) that auctions that have finished with a Best Offer having been accepted ("Best Offer Accepted" image below), have actually gone for the full Buy-it-now price ("Buy-it-now" image below) when you use the TCG finished auction function (www.tolkienguide.com/modules/auctions)?

It works the same way if I'm not logged into my account.



Yep, just tried it also. Handy to know - I suspect it is a bug, so might get "fixed" at some point.

I have tested this with a lot of my own auctions and it always worked. I always offer my items with Buy-it-now & Best Offer and after the auction I print a copy for my records. And the price is always the one I have accepted before. So for me it works fine.


Does it behave in the same fashion for someone other than the seller, though?

I'd stick it on eBay (with shipping worldwide). If you make people here aware of the auction, and perhaps on other Tolkien sites also, I would have thought you will get a fair market price for it at auction. I'd probably even throw a bid in myself :)
